The Most Famous Band From IA? Easy. IL. is a surprise.
Most of us that work in radio originally were drawn to it because of a love for music. At least for me it was growing up watching shows like The Midnight Special and Dick Clark that completely hooked me on the bands of the day.
Of course musical tastes are far ranging and very subjective. Business Insider Magazine recently took it upon themselves to publish a list of the most famous band from every state. You can follow the link to read the criteria that they took into account in determining the most famous band from each state.
Even before I read it, I guessed correctly who would be Iowa’s most famous. That one was pretty easy. But Illinois’ shocked me. There are so many Chicago area bands that the choice had to be difficult. But that was not what I would have guessed.
